The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had to fight various land acquisition battles to build the station which is located at the centre of one of the busiest intersections in the national capital. The delaying legal battles for land acquisition forced the designers to design a station that required a space of 151.6 metre only against the average of 265 metre.
A senior Metro official said that the designers came up with a new design instead of waiting for two years to acquire a private land and delaying the line. He added that since the land prices are soaring, the space saving design is a boon for the government.

Congratulations Delhi Metro for achieving a milestone in Delhi.
